Fairtrade Fortnight 2020 Begins

Monday, 24 February 2020

Fairtrade Fortnight is an annual promotional campaign which happens once every year, organised and funded by the Fairtrade Foundation to increase awareness of Fairtrade products. This year Fairtrade Fortnight takes place between the 24th February to the 8th March 2020.

Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between some of the most disadvantaged farmers and workers in developing countries and the people who buy their products. When farmers and workers can sell on Fairtrade terms, it provides them with a better deal: an opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through everyday shopping.

Fairtrade Ireland works to promote fair trading practices between Ireland and developing countries. Fairtrade Ireland have resources for schools to raise awareness of Fairtrade, and Fairtrade labeling.

Whole-School Ideas Could Include:
1. An art competition.
2. A Fairtrade baking event.
3. A school campaign for Fairtrade.
